The starving artist trope subsists for a reason; freelancing, especially freelancing in art, doesn't provide much. Especially not in this economy. It's something you really have to want to do in order to justify the time put in and the generally meager returns, and if you're doing it in your spare time from a far more stable career, you might as well do what you really want, put it out there, and follow opportunities that are drawn to you from your own voice.
Of course, like everyone else, that's just my experience talking.
Autistic protagonists. Animal-themed robot suits. Anachronological storytelling that reinforces the present with various parts of the past. Open discussions of why people manage to keep themselves going, especially against the worst of darkness. Discussion of what it means to be human. Need I go on?
SharpyTheYellowKirby:I wouldn't trust anyone who's willing to beat up people who LOOK like they support Nazis. Assuming they're Nazis by their looks is seriously concerning, and doesn't make me wanna support their ideology.
I can't think of an instance where a Swastika isn't a sign that the adult person is irredeemably horrible threat to the safety of the community, and even trying to debate club one's way into a set of circumstances where a Nazi isn't really a Nazi is monstrously disrespectful to everyone who's rightly frightened by the rise of public white supremacy in America, let alone those who've already been victimized. Since Jews were the #1 target of the old Nazis and still become targets if we do anything that isn't passing for Protestant, this includes me. Hence why I can't abide those who want a detached and even-handed approach to a national state of emergency perpetuated by the state itself, and would rather pick apart the people trying to resist than acknowledge just how horrible the Nazis are. (If you don't have personal experience with bigotry, just remember how for so long, the Nazis were a lazy shorthand for "bad guy" in movies and comics FOR GOOD REASON)
